Warren was listed as a "Cherokee," a claim she has made in recent weeks in her campaign against Republican incumbent Scott Brown, despite the lack of evidence that the Massachusetts Democrat is actually descended from Native Americans. The Boston Herald reports:

Warren, who has been under fire for claiming Indian lineage despite a lack of documentation, is identified as “Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee” under each of five recipes she contributes in the cookbook, published in 1984 by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum located in Muskogee. Warren is not listed as an official member of the Cherokee tribe and she has been unable thus far to document her claim of any Native American heritage.

She offered a recipe on herbed tomatoes, touting them as a “great accompaniment to a plain meat and potatoes meal!” She also included a crab with tomato mayonnaise dressing dish and a Mexican oatmeal soup that included oats, onions, tomatoes and chicken broth.

“The soup sounds weird, but everyone who tries it, loves it!” Warren wrote.

The Herald also has more images of Warren's contributions to the cookbook, viewable here.
